About Derek

Let me start with what is most important in my life and that is I am the proud father of 6 wonderful kids and I have been married to my sweetheart for 20 years. For me its all about Family, Faith, and Fitness. Being where I am at now physically, I realized how much I missed out on in my life over the past decade. I was an athlete in High School in both Football and Baseball where weight training was a predominant factor in my life for many years. I worked in construction for 10 years where I was always physically active and never really had to worry about my health or weight. When I changed careers and became a Project Manager for a Heavy Civil Company my lifestyle changed and I was less active than I had been in the past and my weight slowly but surely started to creep up. Before I knew it I was 55 pounds heavier than I usually was in the past and my health was starting to be compromised. I took a hard look at myself and realized I was not showing up for my kids and I was not going to be around for them in the future like I wanted to be unless I made a change. 

I was in classic Dad mode of going to work all day, every day and putting myself aside. I lived by the term “Dad Bod”, that’s where I was in my life l was just accepting of it telling myself that I didn’t have time to take care of myself, all the while knowing that I was not happy inside. I decided then and there to start caring for myself which was extremely hard to do. I was able to lose 50 pounds through extreme calorie restriction and revamping my love for the gym and I got down to a goal weight that I was happy with. But I then asked myself the question “Now What?” I could not sustain the calorie restriction long term and I needed to teach myself proper nutrition. That is where I enlisted the guidance of a nutrition coach and learned what it truly means to “Fuel” your body properly. Armed with this new knowledge of nutrition and continuing my Gym Workouts I am at a place now in my life where my happiness is in alignment with my health. I truly feel-good day in and day out which is life changing. I am showing up better for my family, my habits and choices are being reflected onto my kids and they are picking up these trends that lead to a healthy lifestyle.

Health and Fitness is my passion I am PN1 Nutrition Certified which has given me a significant amount information to continue my health journey throughout the rest of my life because this journey never ends and for that I am grateful. If you are a busy person and you are ready to make a change to feel better reach out to me and let’s get you started on your Journey. I promise it will be life changing and you won’t regret it. I got you.
